The incident has prompted the Kanpur administration to take preventive steps, which include putting up a 10 feet net in front of the stands to ensure that any object thrown by fans does not reach the ground.

"Water bottles, tiffins and any metallic object will not be allowed inside the stadium," Kanpur Police SSP Shalabh Mathur said.
